(1) Purpose. To control the use and development of certain Montana roads and trails whose scenic and cultural attributes are of high recreational value warranting formal protection.
(2) Description. Roads or trails along or through high-quality recreational resources where recreational opportunities are dispersed. The roads or trails may be under the control of a private person or other governmental agency or subdivision if there is no conflict in uses, such as a highway with relatively little traffic.

Natural environment and aesthetic qualities should be cautiously protected in designation of state recreation roads and trails.
